Described as a “Jeff Buckley look-alike singing through the hoarse tones of last nights cigarettes” by Gigwise – the latest video for FIL BO RIVA’s track, titled Franzis is fun and different.
As Fil takes to the stage, the video follows a multifarious cast of dancers through a lonely, nondescript Weinstube, perhaps in Berlin, maybe anywhere else in Germany.
Like the song that soundtracks it, the video is in turns affectionate and romantic as it is playful and whimsical.
Bo Riva may look a little like Jeff Buckley, but his vocals are gruff and sung through the hoarse tones of last night’s cigarettes, which make an interesting contrast to the crisp, melodic indie pop that he croons over.
Fil recently completed a tour across Europe supporting Joan As Policewoman, and is set to begin his own tour throughout Germany and Central Europe in January 2017 in support of his ‘If You’re Right, It’s Alright’ EP.
